TREAS/TTB RIN: 1513-AC13 Publication ID: Spring 2019 
Title: Use of American Viticultural Area Names as Appellations of Origin on Wine Labels 
Abstract:

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) proposes to amend its regulations to allow certain wine labeled with a single-State American viticultural area (AVA) as an appellation of origin to be fully finished in an adjacent State.  TTB is making this proposal in response to public comments received on a previous rulemaking.  This proposal would increase the number of industry members who would be eligible to label their wines with an AVA name as an appellation of origin.  The use of AVA names on wine labels is voluntary.  Treasury is considering whether it can achieve relevant statutory objectives at a lower cost.
